The Brimfield Cocktail is the perfect drink for this uber-expansive event located up in the area of Massachusetts known as Brimfield.
It is not a weak cocktail by any form of the word.
This drink is meant to make you spend money.
But why would you want to spend money at Brimfield?
That’s a pretty interesting question. Brimfield is the largest outdoor antique and flea market in the United States.
This bucolic section of the state is just filled with dealers of every thing collectable.
From the mundane to the vividly imaginative- if it says craft or garden design or perhaps fine arts, or even fabulous bed linens, you can find it at Brimfield.
But why would I want to go to Brimfield?
I was invited by The Daily Basics to be their Mixologist for the event in the VIP Tent.
My friend Graham from Tenneyson Absinthe generously donated his explosively delicious Absinthe, Royal Rose Syrups donated their “Rose” Syrup and Bitter End was kind enough to send me some Curry and also their Thai Bitters.
Polar Beverages sent dozens and dozens of flavored seltzer waters from their Bartenders Series making for a boozy afternoon of socializing, cocktail enjoyment and cocktail whispering!
The Brimfield Cocktail takes your mind far off the beaten path of shop, shop, shop. Sometimes you have to sit down, recharge your tired legs and enjoy a couple of “wickedly” powerful cocktails like the Brimfield Cocktail.
Cynthia Bogart and Gretchen Aubucheon did everything they could to make the event absolutely perfect.
